    TUCP Calls For A1 Vaccination Priority For Aircrew
    AMIDST the impending reopening by government of our severely affected tourism industry and larger efforts to revive the entire economy, the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) is calling on the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to provide A1 priority vaccination of cabin crews, flight attendants, pilots and other aviation workers. TUCP believes air crew are all frontline workers, similarly situated as seafarers and overseas Filipino workers due for deployment, who contribute enormously to keeping our economy afloat under a dangerous health environment, and should therefore be given firstline priority by government for mass vaccination against the threat of COVID-19 infection. Air transport is a frontline activity underpinning both human mobility and global trade, argued TUCP President Rep. Raymond C. Mendoza. Air transport relies on aircrew, who travel across borders at all times,which may result in the need to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination as a condition for entry in some countries. For Philippine air transport to sustain various industries and to carry domestic and foreign tourists, our aircrew need to be vaccinated as soon as possible, explained Mendoza.
